Fishing spots in Kalgan River, Albany, WA

If you want a place where kids can catch fish, Kalgan River is your best bet.  Located about 15-20 kms north east of Albany it is a very picturesque spot for the perfect picnic and fishing adventure.  We stayed at the Kalgan River Caravan Park (which has a Par 3 golf course free to residents) and fished nearby.  Kangaroos abound day and night.

We took our two grandkids aged 6 and 4 there at Christmas time.  Apart from the normal hassles of kids and fishing lines, they managed to catch quite a few fish.  They were all bream and pretty much all small.  BUT, we did get fish and plenty of them.

We used prawn for bait but the fish aren’t really fussy.

One interesting feature of fishing on the Kalgan is that the pelicans follow your every move.  Once we started giving them the small fish it was time to pack up.  They got a little aggressive and wanted more and more fish and they became increasingly bold.

It is great to be able to allow kids to actually catch fish without all the tiresome waiting. You pretty much get a bite on every cast.
